ACTOR Ben Lamb has returned home to appear in an outdoor performance of a Shakespeare classic.

Mr Lamb, pictured, from North Oxford, is playing four characters in a production of As You Like It in the historic surroundings of the Old Schools Quadrangle at the Bodleian Library, until July 31.

The 22-year-old plays Silvius, Le Beau, Charles the wrestler and Audrey as part of the Shakespeare’s Globe tour of the bard’s comedy.

He said: “It is great. We have done over 50 shows already and it is still just as fresh as it was when we started.

“It is the first outdoor show I’ve done – and the setting, at the Bodleian, is absolutely beautiful.”
